no just jack it up by the spindle and hit the lower control arm. use a huge hammer and dont be afraid to really give it hell. as for the upper control arm... put a 1/2 drive ratchet... in between the upper control arm and the frame. then hit the spindle with the hammer... and Yeeeaaaa!
Get a balljoint seperator, a BFH, and beat the hell out of it. It should drop pretty easily if you do. Just watch how you position the forks on the seperator so you don't puncture the boots. Also make sure you don't run one of them forks through the control arm....don't laugh I did it. lol
